Welcome to the 2016-2017 school year and our new school website. As principal of Country Lane Elementary, I am thrilled to be part of such a vibrant and diverse community dedicated to improving the academic, social and emotional well being of all our students. With close to 650 students, Country Lane Elementary is a transitional kindergarten through fifth grade school in the Moreland School District. Our school, recognized multiple times as a California Distinguished School, is known for its exemplary staff, responsible, capable students, and involved, supportive parent community.
Our school is dedicated to providing our students with an outstanding educational experience by creating a learning environment that is both challenging and accessible to meet the diverse needs of our students. Our grade level teams work diligently to plan and prepare comprehensive academic curriculum for their students which focuses on the California Common Core State Standards (CCSS) and are supported by our recent curriculum adoptions. Country Lane teachers and support staff work collaboratively with colleagues as well as with our parent community to foster a school culture based on respect, responsibility and safe behavior. Please go to our Programs tab and click on Colts Can (PBIS) to learn more. We emphasize a growth mindset philosophy that values dedication and effort as the core ingredients to help us achieve. This is the understanding that intelligence can be developed through effort, motivation, perseverance and a willingness to try new strategies.
At Country Lane we are extremely fortunate to have families who are committed to the understanding that education is the foundation of success for their child and willing to provide support both in and out of the classroom. The home school connection is pivotal to the growth and progress of all our students. Please visit our For Families tab to explore various ways to get involved. We look forward to working with you to provide the best possible experience for your child.
On behalf of the entire staff, we welcome you to Country Lane Elementary. We are privileged to work with you and your child to help guide them on their educational journey.
